How to Create an Office in a Small Space

This is a guest post from my friend Katie Conroy at advicemine.com.

Remote work comes with many benefits, but they can come at the cost of work-life balance. After all, it’s hard to separate your personal and professional life when they both happen in the same space. This is even harder for people who live in small homes or apartments.

When you’re ready to move into a larger space, reach out to Christian Buys Homes to get an offer on your current property. In the meantime, here’s how to make the most out of even the smallest of spaces:

Build Boundaries

Create a dedicated workspace through mental and physical barriers.

  • No spare room? Consider building an office in a large closet!
  • If you set your desk up in one of your living spaces, put up room dividers or find a way to fold it away at the end of the day.
  • Never work in bed. It will be difficult to focus, and it will ruin your ability to get a good night’s sleep.

Facilitate Productivity

When you have the tools to get work done, you can leave it behind at the end of the day.

Prioritize Downtime

Don’t let yourself succumb to burnout.

Working remotely in a small space comes with major challenges, but it’s possible. By making an active decision to create a work-life balance for yourself, you can access productive mode and then leave it behind at the end of the day. Keep these resources on hand as you figure out how to make the most of your small office space.
